I know my rating is much lower than the other's, but we just didn't have a good experience or think the park was that nice, especially for the price. It is right across the street from lake access and you're probably not going to do any better for location to Lake Tahoe. It's also nicely shaded with pine trees. That's about all I have to say that's good. The beach across the street was crowded with noisy drunks and the tent campers at this place were absolute savages. Loud, foul-mouthed drunks (and I'm a drinker). I felt so sorry for the one legitimate family in the tent area, next to all these people. They looked pretty unhappy about it. Luckily I had one large yard-sized trash bag I keep in the trailer, because our site was full of trash (mostly alcohol related) when we arrived. I had to put on gloves and fill the large trash bag half full- that's how much trash was left behind; and no it wasn't the bears, it was dumped in piles. The sites are close together and there is no privacy what-so-ever. The staff was very friendly, but keep in mind it's college kids who don't know anything about RV'ing. The access roads and sites are tight like others have mentioned, but you just have to be careful where you go. There are spots that will accommodate big rigs, you may just need to check your site first and ask for another if its too small. We had no problem getting in and out. I could see this place being better in the winter, when there's less trouble-makers and cheaper rates, but we won't stay here again.

I suspect the only reason this campground previously got an "8" is that an owner or their affiliate posted the below review. I wish I had noticed this before we stayed here. The reviewer only has 2 reviews, and they are both for this campground. It looks close to the interstate on a map, but actually requires a fair amount of driving on smaller roads. This campground IS NOT lake front. That is a lie; it has a small man-made pond and no sites back up to this either. The gate and entry road are a bit tight. The sites are gravel and required a little leveling. Some buildings are in very poor shape. The dumpsters were overflowing, and the park smelled of garbage and sewer. The little playhouse at the playground was full of trash, and there was trash throughout the park. Most of the surrounding trailers were permanent and had a lot of clutter out front and/or permanent porches full of junk. The electricity box is behind the site and my cord fell just short. Luckily I have a 30AMP extension cord. We got suckered by the bogus review on here; don't let the same happen to you. Look at my review history and the "8" reviewer's history.

Really nice park, especially considering it's in a fairly urban area. It's also giant. The only park I have come across that's larger, is Fort Wilderness. Lots of features and the staff has really simplified the process of taking public transit into D.C.. The park is run very efficiently and professionally, with very friendly staff. The sites are gravel and required a little leveling, but are nicely shaded. The have a nice little store, with a whole separate section with RV parts/supplies. I was shocked at how well stocked it was for its size and they actually beat Camping World's price on every item I could remember the price on. Keep in mind they are an RV park; I thought that was impressive. Nice pool area (two pools), though it was still a little crowded given how large this place is. We don't bring pets, but they have a huge field for pets to play in. The freeways driving in to the park can be tight and have a lot of traffic, but I suspect our GPS didn't pick the most RV friendly route.

The park was very new, clean and had a nice pool, but beyond that was nothing special and was OK for overnight. The sewer hookup is toward the front of the site and our 20' hose would not reach it. I noticed almost no one was hooked up, probably for this reason. The one unit hooked up was using two long hoses connected together. Sites are gravel and ours required side-to-side leveling. All this was very annoying when you are hoping to pull in quickly for the night.

We originally stopped at the Comfort Inn RV Park that was right next to the freeway. It was not even close to the $15 price PA members get ($29) and the sites/hookups seemed to be sub-standard, so we left and found Jolly Acres. It is 8 minutes away from I-95 but was a good decision. This was a legitimate, full-size RV park with plenty of room. The sites, hookups, and pads are in great shape. Nice location, under the trees, more geared toward RV'ers and even a duck pond and playground.

This is obviously a great campground and the positives vastly outweigh the negatives. So much in fact, it would take forever to list them. As such, I'm only going to list the very few things that weren't as good. It doesn't mean I didn't think it wasn't a good park. It seems that the preferred loops and some of the access roads/points were a bit tight. I thought the internal bus system was OK, but the buses to the Disney parks didn't come often enough. The boat to Magic Kingdom was very efficient though. Everything is a little overpriced; it's Disney so that should go without saying. If you live close enough to come here often, you should consider buying a golf cart. It's big enough to necessitate one and the rentals are absurdly priced at $63 a day.

Very nice location. Seems to be a bit of a hidden gem. Cedar Key does not have the kind of beaches you could swim, etc. at, but it has a great ocean view. The sites are fairly close together, but worth it for the view and location. There were some bugs also. The hookups are very new and in great shape. The managers were great. I came out and the guy was parking and leveling my rig for me. Wow, I'm usually shocked to even get an escort to the site. They set up a hammock for us and found a gecko to show our daughter. Very genuinely friendly and welcoming folks, who obviously love what they do. I hate to say it, because it will make it harder to get a spot here in the future, but there is a reason everyone is giving this place a "9" or "10".

This price was with a AAA discount. This park is under some large trees and is nice enough, just not worth $40 to overnight. The access roads are tight is a couple spots, but the sites are more than long enough. The machines in the laundry room were all rusty. The pool closes at 7pm, which seems a little early considering how hot Florida is. Also, why can't my kid have an inflatable ring in the pool again?

Date of Stay:

The access roads were tight and our site was far, far from level. It was quite a project to try and level. This park seemed pretty run down. The hookups had exposed wiring and electrical tape visible that just didn't seem safe. The water had a brown tint to it and not just initially- it stayed that way. The playground was pretty much just an old swing set. It has The Shed BBQ restaurant on site. I thought it was sickening sweet and seemed like it was made in a crock-pot, never having seen smoke. I'd pass on this place unless you're desperate.

This park was OK for overnight. The site was off pretty far side-to-side, but was just long enough to not unhook. There is a small pool.

It worked OK for an overnight stay, but really not much else I could imagine one wanting to come here for. The pull-through was not level, which is always a pain if you're just pulling for the night. It was long enough to not un-hook, which was helpful. There was a little store with ice and supplies.

The owners here were great. They waited up for us to come in a little after closing and gave us an escort to the site and help setting up. There's plenty of room, easy to pull in/out, and our site was perfectly level. The hookups were in good shape and there are shade trees (a rarity for this area). If you are going to come in after 8PM call earlier and let them know or they will lock up and leave. The only reason I didn't give it a higher rating is the location. Willcox, AZ is not exactly a destination. If you have to overnight in this region, though, this was a great place to stop. I though this was a good value and appreciated the service.

Great park, with excellent access to Mt. Rushmore. The KOA was a little closer to Rushmore, but we looked and this place had much more private, shaded spots. It's a beautiful location, with lots of pine trees and a nice large meadow. The site was way out of level, but I'm willing to spend time leveling for nice scenery. I'm going to give one word of caution though, there is at least one area that is very tight for larger rigs. The site we originally got was along a very narrow access road with pines trees very close together and in the way. I tried unsuccessfully, even with the nice neighbor's help, to get into the site and it just wasn't going to work. Its the first time I have ever had to give up and ask for another site. They were very nice about it though and the next site was a breeze to back into. They have access for even the largest rigs, you just have to stay out of that one section. We would definitely stay here again.

The sites are fairly tight and the access roads are the same. Since people were hanging over the end of their short sites, it was a pain to get into our pull-through. Then it took an entire set of blocks just to level side-to-side and a whole bunch of blocks to level front-to-back. Really annoying for a quick overnight stay. It would have been easier to get into the back-ins actually and I would recommend you consider these as they have their own little area behind each. If you come from the west, you will be directed by signs and GPS off an exit where there is a huge dip in the city street and you will almost undoubtedly scrape in anything of a medium or larger size. The road is all scraped from this. The staff was very nice, but it doesn't make up for this parks shortcomings. For half the price I might put up with it to overnight here, but not at what they are charging. I will give them this; they did have some shade trees which are a bit rare in this neck of the woods.

If you're driving through and need a place to stop for the night, this will work. I can't imagine why else you would go here. They were very nice, but there is really no attraction here. Its sort of a dumpy area. The sites are pull-through gravel and were fairly level, but needed a slight amount of side-to-side leveling. The hookups are very new and in good order. The website advertised Wi-Fi and Cable TV, but neither worked. It was very quiet on a Saturday night. It has a graveyard along one side, if that bothers you. I didn't even notice until the morning. The only hospital for many, many miles is right across the street if you have medical concerns. I don't think there were any bathrooms/showers. Compared to many places we have overnighted that were not much better, their price of $27 is reasonable.
